Wavesfactory has announced Classic Rock Drums, a drum sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
We sampled a Ludwig Vistalite drum kit with a Ludwig Supraphonic snare and Zildjian cymbals and hi hat. This kit was used by John Bonham for playing live with Led Zeppelin. Although we are not trying to emulate the Bonham signature sound, this kit is perfect for playing classic rock. Its big toms and low tuned snare suites perfectly in every track.
It has 6 repetitions (round robin) and 6 velocities (from soft to strong), but the most important is that on every mic you have the real and natural bleeding of the other parts of the drum. As you can hear on the audio demos, through the mics you can hear exactly what is recorded in a real studio situation. In other words, when you play a key, the sound comes from each of the 8 mics, so there’s 8 files playing. Is like having recorded the drum yourself!
With our custom script you can control the volume, pan and tune of each mic like it was recorded in you own computer or studio. It’s exciting to play and hear it!
Do you want to have separate outputs in multi channel mode? We made a special “multi” instrument in Kontakt where each mic is in a different midi channel, so you can have each channel on diferent tracks.
The sample library is available to purchase for 9.95 EUR.
